Most widely held works by John Thompson
Livy: his historical aims and methods by P. G Walsh( Book )

15 editions published between 1896 and 1988 in English and Latin and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an excerpt from my Second Edition of Books XXI-XXIII., from which it differs only in the modification that has been made in the preliminary matter, in order to adapt it to the single book. The text is that of Madvig's Edition of 1880, but there is a table giving the different readings that appeared in Madvig's text of 1886"--Page [5]
A Greek grammar : accidence and syntax for schools and colleges by John Thompson( Book )

9 editions published between 1902 and 2013 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Thompson (c.1866-1936) was Classics master and headmaster (1908-27) at the prestigious High School, Dublin. A competent linguist, he translated from German, produced a Latin primer, and wrote a Sanskrit course, though he opposed the teaching of Irish. He became a Member of the Royal Irish Academy (1912), President of the Classical Association (1918) and was appointed Officier d'Académie by the French government (1927). This work, first published in 1902, was intended for both the beginner and the more advanced student. It concentrates on Attic Greek, covering accidence in part one and syntax in part two, with appendices on accents and sound changes, Homeric accidence, and the weights, measures and calendar used by Attic Greeks. The work was popular with generations of teachers and pupils. It remains a useful resource for the modern student of Greek, and for readers interested in the history of Classics education
Herodotus, book III by Herodotus( Book )

2 editions published in 1897 in Greek, Ancient and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Xenophon, Oeconomicus : a social and historical commentary by Sarah B Pomeroy( Book )

8 editions published between 1894 and 1925 in 3 languages and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oeconomicus is unique in Greek literature in combining a discussion of the proper management of a family or household and didactic material on agriculture within a Socratic dialogue. One of the richest primary sources for the social, economic, and intellectual history of classical Athens, it has been largely neglected despite the current widespread interest in the subjects discussed. This volume provides a new translation to complement the Oxford Classical Text, and a comprehensive introduction and commentary, making the book readily accessible to those both with and without Greek

Epodes by Horace( Book )

3 editions published between 1895 and 1898 in Latin and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Mankin's introduction and commentary examines all aspects of Horace's relationship with his models and of the technical accomplishment of his verse; it also gives help with linguistic problems. His edition places the Epodes firmly in their literary and historical context: Rome at the time of its greatest crisis, the Civil War which ended the Republic and led to the establishment of the Principate
